with a design of lotus and kingfisher, which is woven.
Textile is silk and jinken (rayon) blend, and has rather crisp touch.
It has discoloration and patinas overall by ages, especially upper otaiko and tesaki(narrow end) are disturbing.(2nd flaw photo)
Side seam of waistline is coming loose in places.
Besides it has some other flaws such as folding lines.
